I really enjoyed last week's thread on David Foster Wallace. He's a writer that I had heard about but never gotten into. But thanks to that thread and the links to his works, I was finally exposed to his writing. I also picked up a copy of Brief Interviews with Hideous Men which I am nearly finished with. I wanted to see what else people are reading/have read that they would recommend to fellow MGoReaders. I'm guessing with the amount of academics/smart people that make up the mgoblog readership, there may have been a thread like this before, but I went back a decent number of pages and didn't see one.
